Today’s Kindle Daily Deal really wants to encourage you to use up any and all gift cards you received for the holidays! There’s twelve memoir books on sale for $2.99 each as well as five sci-fi/fantasy books by author Raymond E. Feist at $1.99 a piece. Eight children’s books are listed at the $2.99 price point, including classics such as Make Way for Duckings, Corduroy, and one of my personal favorites, Sheep in a Jeep. (“Sheep in a jeep on a hill that’s steep. Oh, dear! The driver sheep forgot to steer!”) In case you’re interested, after buying Corduroy for $2.99, you can add narration for just $.69. That Whispersync for voice. They so have my number.
The highlight of the deal, in my opinion, is their 200+ romance novels on sale for $1.99 each. They look to be all–or at least mostly–Sourcebooks titles, and there’s some really good ones in there. It looks like most, if not all of Georgette Heyer’s Regency historicals are included–I absolutely adore her books. The Black Sheep was the first one I read, and it’s still one of my all-time favorite historical romances. All of them are very reminiscent of Jane Austen’s novels, with the bonus of there being so many more of them available. And did I mention Whispersync for voice? Yep, available. I love listening to those British accents!
If you like a more modern feel to your historical romance, there’s plenty on offer from authors like Grace Burrowes (fun writer, but historical accuracy is pretty iffy), Shana Galen (already in my TBR pile), Amelia Grey, and Leigh Michaels, among others.
There’s also plenty of contemporaries, including two series I’m dying to start–Julie Ann Walker‘s Black Knights series (In Rides Trouble, Rev It Up, and Hell on Wheels are on sale) and Olivia Cunning‘s Sinners on Tour books (Backstage Pass, Hot Ticket, Rock Hard, and Double Time are included).
Seriously. I will be all out of gift card cash by midnight tonight.
Plenty of fantasy/paranormal/urban fantasy/steampunk offerings are on sale too, including at least two three-book bundles–also just $1.99! Terry Spear’s Wolf Bundle (The Heart of the Wolf, plus Destiny of the Wolf and To Tempt the Wolf) and Lydia Dare’s Wolf Bundle (A Certain Wolfish Charm, Tall, Dark, and Wolfish, and The Wolf Next Door). I’ve read some of Dare’s vampire books and like some better than others–but for $1.99? Can’t go wrong.
(There’s a romantic suspense bundle from Catherine Mann too–Cover Me and Hot Zone from her Elite Force: That Others May Live series–for $1.99 as well.)
Finally, Barnes and Noble’s Daily Find is Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep for $1.99. Amazon is price matching as well–and Whispersync will add narration for $12.99. King’s ebooks are not cheap, so I’m definitely picking it up.
Anything here tempt you to spend any–or all–of your new gift cards?
